A Good Use
The one thing I don't like about weaving is having to depend on someone else to help you warp the loom. After you thread all the yarn through the heddle, someone else has to help out and hold the loose ends to keep the tension as you wind it all up on the rollers. I just had to come up with a better way. I am too impatient to have to wait for someone to come home and rescue me. Here are my ankle and wrist weights that have long been gathering dust since the holidays. They are just the dead weight needed to drag the yarn across the table as I roll it up. I could insert some joke here about the other dead weight that usually helps me roll this stuff up but that would just be mean.
